    I got nauseated just watching this. Do you realize that once you got to the top of the tower, you can feel the tower swaying? Oh, hell no.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    If you watch closely, when he gets to the top and climbs out there by the light on top, he lets go with both hands to do something! I'd have a death grip on that pole, you think they have a problem getting a cat out of a tree, wait till they get me to the top of that tower!
